Therapy Resources in Your Community
For students seeking counseling / psychotherapy services other than the UMaine Counseling Center, the following links provide resources to help you identify counselors in your communities. It is important to know that not all therapists use these sites to promote their services. You may find good therapists by asking your medical providers, family, or friends. You can also ask therapists if they offer sliding scale options, which means they may reduce their typical prices depending on your financial circumstances. Many of the websites below allow you to use different criteria to search for providers. Some of these sites suggest therapists who do not take insurance.
We do not endorse any particular website or providers on these sites.
Finding providers through a health insurance company
Most insurance companies have lists of their in-network providers on their websites. You can also get information about such providers by calling the phone number on your health insurance cards. You may need to know the specific plan to identify providers that you can see. Because of this, checking these sites can be particularly helpful.
